Playing around in the Sewing Room

I had a lazy weekend around the house, but managed to get some things done in the sewing room. 

IMAG0274.jpgFirst I have to show you the marvelous package of scraps that came from Sara at Sew Sara.  She organized a fantastic scrap swap and I had great swap partners.  I saw on her blog that she needed someone to take on another partner so I volunteered.  It turns out that she had already filled the extra spot, but suggested that we do an additional swap ourselves.  Here is what I received:

I know the picture is fuzzy, but believe me when I tell you it is an amazing collection of scraps.

And now on to the sewing...

My daughter was putting together a gift for a friend's 1 year-old and decided on a swimming theme.  I made a nametag for the basket of goodies and love the way it trned out!


I am working on a pillow that I have almost completed, and will share pictures when it is finished.  I made four stars for the Just One Star  project.  Two blue and two red. 


They went together well and I am so glad I participated in this project.  They will be mailed off to Moda tomorrow.  If you haven't participated in this yet, you still have time.  The deadline to get your block to Moda is May 1st.  If you want more information pleae go HERE.

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend,

Happy Quilting ;)

Your blocks look great. I too participated in this project. It is an awesome way to support those dear ones that sacrifice for our freedom.
